Perhaps so, but they make great bodyguards...

From somewhere on the internet:

"Former chimp owners St. James Davis, a 62-year-old West Covina, Calif., resident, and his wife, LaDonna, 64, were horribly mauled in early March by two chimps that escaped while the couple was visiting Moe, their former pet, at the Animal Haven Ranch in Caliente, Calif. Ironically, Moe had been taken from them because he had severed the finger of a friend visiting them, and had also injured a policeman. St. James sustained the worst of the attack, including brutal injuries to his nose, eye, cheek, lips and buttocks; most gruesome, all of his fingers were bitten off and his testicles torn off. The attacking chimps had to be shot to death. Lesson learned: A chimpanzee or a primate of any kind should never be kept as a pet."
